Choice of Electrodes

Sorry for the long hiatus. School started.

I've chosen carbon rods for my electrodes. This is because they don't contaminate the water and remain conductive.

To keep the surface-volume ratio high, I've chosen sticks of .5 mm pencil lead. They will be "soldered" onto a thin aluminum wire (they aren't actually soldered, they reject being soldered, but it maintains a better electrical connection and holds the sticks in place). Pictures and results later!
